African art experts

African art experts: "Most top end dealers and auction houses are African art experts, but since they also deal in African art they don't always give you a 100% trustable opinion.
I guess you will get a more objective opinion about your pieces, if you tell they are not for sale, and want to have a written appraisal for the insurance, but it usually will cost you some money.
You can also get information about your pieces by asking an estimate to most auction houses specialized in African art.
When people mail me, I tell them if the piece is interesting for me or not, and when I know I can also give some information's about the tribe."
